Throw That ‘Too Hard Basket’ Out and Start Achieving Your Goals

So that famous too hard basket, have you heard the saying? Well i reckon I hadn’t heard of it till I joined the workforce. And it’s made me think, why have we made it so easy to just throw something in the too hard basket, why should this be allowed, because really throwing something in the too hard basket actually means giving up or not doing something about something that needs doing.
I know for me I don’t really think about the too hard basket very often and I think there are 3 reasons for this:
1. I’m usually passionate about the things I think about doing so I’ll do whatever I can to not make it so hard to do.
2. I work on it slowly, do abit here and abit there so it doesn’t feel like I’m taking on a massive task all at once.
3. I don’t think of it as too hard. Our brains have so much power that the more we think something the more real it feels and the more we believe it.
So my lessons here are firstly if you really are passionate about doing something then take it on as a challenge, it’s not going to be easy but it doesn’t mean the idea needs to go in the too hard basket, it just needs a little TLC. Secondly, break your idea down into doable steps (Rome wasn’t built in a day..hey hey hey). And thirdly, I think this point is so important; don’t think of something as too hard, if you really want to do something, and it’s physically possible, then just put a little bit of time and work into it. Once you start working on it, it will become easier and easier!

At First Light: Adelaide’s First Health Morning Dance Party

What does your morning routine look like? Do you ever think about how you could change it up? And then you think…nah…I like to sleep in, get up at the last possible moment, run out of the house with a piece of toast hanging out of your mouth and make it to work just in time or a minute late. But then you seriously think about it, and you do think maybe something does need to change, the stress of running out of the house in the morning and making it to work just in time is not the most ideal scenario.

Now let me share with you a different scenario, one that includes morning yoga and dancing! I know your first thought is probably…”Ain’t nobody got time for that!”. But again you have a serious think and you realise how good that actually sounds…well why not try it while the opportunity is available to you, this is what At First Light is offering you…how cool is that!

Yes you read correctly, morning yoga and dance party…all between 7 and 9am. At First Light is Adelaide’s first health morning dance party. Founder; Leah Kertesz, started the movement as an opportunity to provide Adelaidians with an atmosphere of carefree fun without the need to fuel the body with any ‘substances’. Instead, along with the yoga and dancing, guests are provided with coffee and sweet/healthy treats.

I attended the most recent event, which was held on Rundle Mall. As I entered the marquee I noticed the smiles on everyones faces and everyone just looked like they were loving life…and remember this was around 7.30 in the morning…..who would have thought you could be having so much fun at this time of day! Leah and the At First Light team are hosting their next morning dance party on the 8th of October, I highly recommend checking it out!
